Come to Carlisle, win a Merkur!

Post by DPDISXR4Ti » Mon Mar 22, 2010 3:54 pm

Well, it worked out so well at our 20th Anniversary in 2005, I thought it would be a good idea for Carlisle to give away another Merkur at this year's Silver Anniversary of the Merkur. I made Mike Olyer (aka Merkur Depot), aware of my search, and Mike stepped up to the plate and delivered.

Yesterday afternoon, a red '86 XR4Ti in near-mint condition, made the journey from Ohio to Carlisle, where it will remain on display and then given away at the All-Ford Nationals on June 6 at 3PM.

More details and pics to follow. I just wanted to get this out there today, and kick any of you off the fence, if you were unsure about attending this year. Go register now before you forget: :D

Sooo, when someone wins a car at Carlisle, does that include trailering it home?

No. If you win, just come see me. I'll drive it to my home and abandon my other one. :lol:
